Diagnosis:
Incomplete Spinal Injury T5/6

Personal Opinion:
So many benefits in the design of this chair; it’s lightweight, fits over a seat, strong, good suspension that reduces constant vibrations going through my body and spasms in legs, along with reducing the wear on my body over time. The decent suspension also lengthens the life of the frame/chair when being used to drop off stairs/dips etc, as it reduces impact damage.

Yes, I would recommend to others as the chair helps me maintain the active outdoorsy/extreme lifestyle that I had before breaking my spine. I go everywhere in it, I’ve been up Snowdon the Peak District, the Isle of Wight, Northumberland and of course school and hospitals. It’s great. I just wish it was a little more extreme sometimes.
